With a class of 20-30 kids, Valentines can add up FAST! But these little caped cute-saders are relatively easy to make and you probably make 32 of them for under $4 (the cost of two bags of Tootsie Pops) – which comes out to 13 cents each. The ones pictured above are the real version – we made these for my son’s class last year. If you are more crafty you can make them closer to the picture from the Family Fun magazine where I found them:
I also made two for the teachers that just say “You’re a SUPER teacher” but you could also make them for family members – like “You’re a SUPER dad!” or whomever you have on your Valentine list. On the back of the capes, before we put them on the sucker, I had my son write his name on the back so his friends would know who they were from. You can use any color of paper.

Are you doing fun, creative Valentine’s? I’d love to hear your ideas!
